From tiny medieval gardens to vast Georgian parks, The Story of the English Garden is a fascinating story about passion - and power and politics too. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout and includes new photography of some of the most influential gardens in the world, including Sissinghurst. It is the definitive guide to Europe's greatest collection of historic gardens - a rich celebration of World Heritage sites, rare and exotic plants and groundbreaking architectural design. Author, Ambra Edwards is an environmental campaigner and award-winning writer, three times named the Garden Media Guild's Journalist of the Year. Her work appears regularly in the Telegraph, Guardian and leading garden journals.
